Abstract

The problem of determining the number of teeth on two meshing external spur gears is examined when either a velocity ratio, a center distance, or a combination of the two is specified. A method is proposed for determining all possible combinations of tooth numbers in each case. The theory behind the method is developed first and the method itself is presented algorithmically. Several examples are provided in which the results are compared to those of other methods.
